she needs to remember part of her job is to nurture students ! not just mark them based on her subjective marks
She deserves to burn on the stake for the way she treats students
The thing is that although she is very hard with her marking and has high expectations, you actually learn a lot of different writing techniques in her class. For example, the best thing she'll teach you is HOW TO BE CONCISE! She's also very sweet if you actually talk to her and try your best. She has a lot of experience and knows what she's doing.
Ms Fofic is the worst teacher I have ever had. Going into her class, I had 95s in English and dropped down to a 68. She is one of the most disrespectful teachers I have ever met. She tortured me to the point where she (wrongfully) accused me of plagiarism and then finally I was taken out of her class with two months remaining. She also told me I was going to fail the literacy test, but I passed with a 390 so as you can see there were some issues.
Bad it was just terrible
She's an incredibly rude teacher and if she doesn't like you, it will show. All of my marks have been 90s in high school but this one dropped completely. Asked other teachers to mark my work and we're giving me 80s. It just doesn't add up
She was a mean teacher. Hates if you play sports. Says she's helping you but really isn't. I should have switched out of her class when I had the chance
She's a hard marker but you definitely learn a lot in her class. People don't like her because she's mean, but she's actually a good teacher! She has high expectations, yes, but not impossible. Don't talk a lot in her class and you'll be fine.
I find that most students complain about her although she is such a nice lady that takes such good care of herself! She wasn't necessarily a hard teacher,you just had to rember to put your best foot forward and complete all homework and assignments on time!
When it commes to marking, she is so bad it leaves you momentarily bereft of speech. Yet, she actually knows what she is doing.
This women is nothing short of rude and disrespectful to her students and has no business being a teacher with her miserable "on my high horse" attitude. She should be ashamed of herself and doesn't deserve to be a teacher! I
I don't care what people think about her, she is def the best english teacher I've ever had. Yeah, sure she's a hard marker but when you're done with her class atleast you'll know you can write properly!
I try to my best in all my classes. This is my only academic class because i am usually good in english. But with her, shes always saying i have bad writing and so ive just stopped trying.
Ms. Fofic is an excellent teacher. She constantly strives to push her students to the limit, improve their analysis skills and conciseness. I've never had a teacher as dedicated to her students as Ms. Fofic.
honestly she is the hardest marking teacher that i have ever had i normally do really well in english and i didnt do nearly as well in her class... also she ALWAYS thinks that she is right... its rather annoying
She is a very hard marker, but she is helpful if you ask. I liked having her as a teacher too.
way too hard of a marker,does not allow any room for any other's opinion but her own,is completely ignorant to the feelings of the students she is meant to be helping,contradicts her own methods making it impossible to pass.
You can tell that she's been a teacher for a while because she sounds really bored while giving a lesson.
You sort of had to push yourself to improve, while stripped from any sense of motivation. She ended up giving me an 80, but as the semester went on, and especially after that semester, I understood why. Thanks for helping!!
There seem to be students that upset her, yet they are only making it worse for themselves. Great teacher in grade 12. Taught a lot of valuable lessons. -TheGerman
did anyone know that english is her second laguage? and she teaches the course so perfectly that if you're not perfect as well, you will basically get a 60. you either pass or fail
For grade 10 english she was awesome. As long as you do the work and put in a good effort you'll do well in her class.
lol i was thrown outta that class so much and i still passed. if a student isnt there half the semester think they would fail, and talk about uptight and overreacting.
Mrs. Fofic is my favourite teacher, she is really great, she is nice and helpful and really prepares us for university!
explanations of homework are unclear. if you go on a trip she will never give you homework before. she is a very hard marker and gives tons of homework, but it is possible to do.
Omg i spent hours working on my essay and she goes and scratches it all up and i like just passed the essay by the skin of my teeth i mean howhard can u mark lady ru uptight or wut
I did amazing work in that class when I was there at Ajax, and I she still failed me. I even got other teachers to check it for me and they said I did good work
She is a teacher that you appreciate later. She teachesthe grammar and how to write essays so you succeed down the road.
Shes an alright teacher, i've had her two years in a row, she marks very hard but she does make english interesting.
Fofic is a great teacher, i didnt so well cause i never did homework....she's a hard marker..but she definitly made english interesting
Mrs. Fofic seems to be an intelligent person, however I think she needs to re-evaluate her teaching methods. PS, South-Ajax isn't windy.
She didn't give any instruction.. deadlines were never spelled out at the begining.. "preparing us for university".. if we even get in with these marks from her
she doesn't seem to understand the concept of interpretation. It's her way, or no way at all!
lacks sincerity, is monotone when reading scripts in drama, will not give you a break just once...
